Raise your hand if you are tired of…

  • Trying to find ways to improve students' reading and ELA skills in a way that engages all readers.
  • Not having the time to meet all of your ELA reading standards throughout the school year.
  • Hearing groans and grumbles from lack of student engagement in reading.

Teaching reading does not have to be this way!

  • When students find the answer, they can check their work with the included password-protected PDF file!

What is included in each of the 40 challenges?

  • A Google Slides presentation to guide the lesson and activity with instructional slides, activity prompts, the narrative story text, story conclusion slides, and an answer keys for review
  • An interactive digital escape-room style challenge where students must use their knowledge of the reading topic to complete the challenge.
  • A password-protected PDF to check their answer.
